    I'm surprised it held 60. Most people I talk to seem to be in the 30-40 range. That is; they are disgusted with economy, unemployment, politicians, rising food/gas prices.

    Lower must be better because the market rallied off of the report so far.

    This has a big weighting in the LEI - might be enough to drive it negative on its own in the next release.

    Consumers have been readjusting their expectations to cope with the "it's a dry heat" nature of Recovery Summer 3.
